This photograph, trimmed to the image, is in generally very good to excellent condition. It is on semi-glossy paper with a Kodak backprint. There are several crescent-shaped handling creases visible in raking light, as well as a diagonal crease across the lower left corner that does not appear to break the emulsion. There is a tiny pinpoint-sized impression in the lower right quadrant and a small glossy area, possibly glass offsetting, in the upper left quadrant.
When examined under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce.
